My boyfriend is an amazing cook and has been making delicious, bacon-fat-heavy dishes from Thomas Keller's cookbook. My waistline and tummy prefer lighter, semi-vegetarian fare, but I don't want to discourage his wonderful cooking. Is there a cookbook the two of us might be equally happy with?

My bestest friends host a New Year's Eve party each year with the caveat that everyone bring an appetizer they've never made before to share. It's great fun and each year we've found a new favorite recipe and one that gets scrapped into the garbage after the first taste.
That said, I'd love to bring them an appetizer cookbook as a thank you for hosting AND bring the best damn appetizer ever. Cookbooks with great appetizer sections are okay, but I'd prefer a full-on appetizer cookbook recommendation. No restrictions to ethnicity or ingredients. Thanks!

I am trying to identify a woman from a cookbook. "The only thing I know about her is two pictures from a cookbook printed by the Maryland Seafood Marketing Authority (Department of Economic and Community Management) in the mid-1970s." [more inside]

Please recommend good books that discuss the theory of food taste and design—analyzing flavors and textures, figuring out pairings, that sort of thing. Either savory or dessert-centered would be fine. [more inside]

What surreal work of fiction details the increasingly adventurous menus of two obviously pseudonymed authors? I've lost my copy, the name, the author's names, and possibly part of my sanity. [more inside]
